You got to hand it to the person that came up with that idea, he must have made quite a bit of money.

First off, we must observe that any product that has "Michael Jackson" and "Rub N' Play" in its title is asking for trouble.
These were made in 1984, when The King of Pop was at the peak of his game. Since the scandals of the Nineties were far in the future, Colorforms was thrilled that Michael Jackson was willing to put his name and image on their wholesome product.

SeinfeldRulesYou got to hand it to the person that came up with that idea, he must have made quite a bit of money.[/quote] [quote=stupid.com]For those youngsters who don't remember (or those oldsters who want to forget), the Pet Rock was a sensation in the mid-Seventies. Millions were sold, and millions of dollars were made for its inventor, Gary Dahl. We have a photo of Mr. Dahl outside the employee's cafeteria at Stupid Headquarters. Our secret motto is, "If Gary Dahl can get rich selling junk, why not us?"

Yep, he made some profit off some people....

Remember that huge 1960s fad, Clik Clak?! We don't either.
We're not sure what these things are but they are covered with loud Sixties graphics and we think they are groovy.
clak-2.jpgThese Clik Claks are a relic of the Psychedelic Era. They are in their original package. In fact, they still have their original price tag of 47 cents. (Please note: We are not selling them for 47 cents. That's what they cost in the Sixties. Times change. Prices rise. Deal with it. )
You play with Clik Claks by winding the string, and then pulling the handles. This makes the day-glo disks spin and bang against each other. We can only imagine that this was very entertaining to Hippies experimenting with strange mushrooms. :lol:
